Tuesday War News UPDATE: Kassams, Mortars Continue as Regime Weighs 48 Hour Freeze on Cast Lead Ops


It may be that the much decorated defense minister Ehud Barak is a wily, cunning military character who may well have more tricks up his sleeve for operation Cast Lead, including a ground offensive which takes Hamas by surprise.

But, excuse the cynicism, the fact remains that over the last 3 1/2 years, Israel’s governance has lost all credibilty, both diplomatically and militarily, amongst the governed. And Ehud Barak, along with the rest of the governing Troika of Olmert and Livni, is very much a part of problem regarding lost credibility. MB
